About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

An Endless Christmas by Cynthia Ruchti!

My Thoughts:

One of the blessings of 2015 has been discovering Cynthia Ruchti. Truly, her books are beautiful with stories of hope, forgiveness, love and the Lord. They are unique and engaging while her characters are flawed in a realistically endearing manner. I find myself identifying with so many of the personalities and remembering them long after the book is closed and their stories have been told. Please- if you can get your hands on An Endless Christmas- do so! It would be lovely to read anytime but especially meaningful the month of December. The story revolves around the Binder family Christmas, their beloved traditions, and imperfect pasts filled with grace. On the first page Micah Binder proposes to his girlfriend, Katie, who has just met his family of 20+ for the first time. And her answer is... No.  What follows is nothing you would ever expect but I believe it will cause you to reflect on your own life, your heart and your Christmas experience. 

I wanted to jump into the pages of this book! The Binder family is precious with their delightful traditions: Bonfire of Regrets, Christmas pageant, family charity gift, and Grandma Binder's "No Technology Rule". The one bathroom situation (well, there is a second one in the barn) for 20 people adds a delightful element of chaos as does the sleeping arrangements (Katie slept in the kitchen window seat). Nothing can stop Christmas week- not a blizzard, lack of electricity, ER trips or even broken hearts. I was a puddle of tears when Grandpa Wilson told the Christmas story- just beautiful. 

An Endless Christmas was just what I needed to remember what Christmas is all about. I highly recommend reading this precious tale as an escape from the craziness of the holidays. It will put your heart in the right place, comfort your weary mind and bless you greatly. ❤️

Thank you, Cynthia Ruchti, for this beautiful story.

About the book: 
An Endless Christmas
 (Worthy Inspired, October 2015)

Too many people, too much snow, and too little room should be a recipe for disaster.

Christmas takes a very different turn when the guests of honor break up instead of announcing their engagement. Trapped with his family, they learn that love looks different than either imagined. Both in their eighties, Dodie and Wilson Binder celebrate every Christmas as if it were their last. This year, their grandson Micah is planning to ask his girlfriend, Katie, to marry him so they can celebrate with the whole family. But things go very wrong when she says, "no." Now they are stuck. Too many people, too much snow, and too little room should be a recipe for disaster. But sometimes too much is just enough. Especially when it's Christmas.
